Demonstrations include earthwatch.org, a site for adventure travel. Also lonelyplanet.com, one of the earliest attempts to put travel guides on line. Another site, roadsideamerica.com, offered advice on "strange and wacky" vacations. Other travel sites shown are eathere.com, terraquest.com, magna.com, epicurious.com, thetrip.com, urbanaccess.com, greentortoise.com, infohub.com, and brainlink.com.
